Steve Rizzo’s Bio

Yes, He’s a Funny Motivational Speaker…
But Don’t Let the Laughter Fool You!

He’s like Tony Robbins—only funny… and a lot shorter.

Steve Rizzo’s programs are indispensable tools for maximizing your success and happiness, while challenging you to confront your inner fears and to explore the outside world. His Attitude Adjustment Strategies teach you how to SHIFT your way of thinking and to laugh at them both.

Anthony Robbins, Author
Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power

What Steve brings to the table is his captivating ability to engage the attendees with laughter as he challenges them to SHIFT their focus and way of thinking to discover greater enthusiasm, increased productivity and new levels of success. He is a Motivational Mechanic who tunes and tweaks each member of the audience to succeed at their full potential.

You may have seen Steve Rizzo on TV…

… as a SHOWTIME COMEDY ALL-STAR and sharing the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Rodney Dangerfield, Eddie Murphy, Ellen DeGeneres and many more giants of comedy. Or maybe you’ve seen Steve as the go-to guy on Personal  Development on FOX NEWS, MSNBC, NBC, and CNBC. His immensely popular PBS special brought him into the homes of millions, and revealed why he’s an expert on Attitude, Motivation, Humor, and the Power of Positive Thinking.

Yes, he’s hysterical… but don’t let the laughter fool you.

A personal development expert, motivational speaker and author, Steve Rizzo’s mission is to share with others how they can be successful and happy no matter their circumstances. You can’t attend one of his keynote speeches, seminars, or read his books and leave with the same attitude.

“Difficult situations don’t cause us to fail or to be unhappy,” says Steve, “but rather it’s our negative thoughts and beliefs about the situation.”

Steve has shared his Success Strategies with companies such as AT&T, American Airlines, JP Morgan Chase, State Farm, Prudential, Marriott, and even the CIA (yes, he had them laughing as they learned how to get to a better place in business and in life, too) since 1994.

It’s no surprise that Steve’s been inducted into the Speakers Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed upon on fewer than 200 speakers worldwide since 1977.
